3 M Cloud Would give it a five but if does strange things. Freezing up, getting big for no particular reason. Lots of books and good reads. Would like it of you paid attention and had all the books in a series. Sometimes you only have the beginning or middle book. Seems like no particular reason to it. It's better now but I have a better phone. Like to be able to get books. Thanks for the fun.
Easy to use but needs directions Navigating through a book is somewhat intuitive but that might be because I have a kindle. It took me a while to figure out how to get to the menu when I was done reading. I also would prefer if the app opened up with the books I borrowed rather than the suggested books. I still haven't figured out all the settings yet and it seems less flexible than I would like. However, checking out and returning books is really easy and I like that.
UGH! I'll never get anything done ever again. Seriously, the last thing I need in my life is to be able to download free ebooks from the library! I have read three 170 "page" books in the last 3 days. Where is my comfie recliner, cat and a super tasty old-fashioned? ~PS, the app is great. :~}
Recommended User friendly and fairly simple. Once you're logged in all of your books and history are just a button away and searching is easy too. My only complaint would be the browse lists. As far as I can tell they never change listing the same handful of books in the same order.
Works Well But Needs Instructions for Smaller Tablets Works properly on many devices. Menu control feature which has the font size and the reading progress bar is hard to bring up on the smaller android tablets. Instructions or a tutorial is needed for these devices at least, especially if this is the first or only device this app is installed on. Otherwise, the user may find this app is unusable. I initially gave this app a low score until I accidentally found the menu.
Good reader, but it jumps to other functions without being told to Works great, but the designers decided to have it jump to different screens when inactive or offline, which disrupts the reading experience. Whoever is in charge of UX on the app was not paying attention to the primary usage - its a reader. If im reading and go offline, why make me restart the book? Even if its from where i left off, thats bad UX.
